With the official start of spring now less than 24 hours away (it arrives officially at 7:02 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, March 20), the tristate region received one (hopefully) last blast of wintry weather that began at nightfall on Monday.
But with snow expected to change to rain in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, the prospects are promising that today’s scheduled games and scrimmages will be played. But stay tuned here for any weather-related updates.
Today’s slate is headlined by the traditional lid-lifter between Garden City and Syosset. This will be the fifth straight year the LI powers have opened the season against one another. Game-time is 4:45 p.m. at Garden City (which is a late change of venue). Defending New York Class B state champion GC has won three straight against the 2012 Nassau County Class A champion Braves, who last defeated the Trojans, 6-3, in 2009.
Another national power, Avon Old Farms, started its season with a 7 p.m. game against Kent Denver (Colo.) in Florida.
In other games today on Long Island, Commack visits Mount Sinai at 4 p.m., Oyster Bay hosts Hicksvilleand Plainedge visits Plainview JFK at 4:15 p.m., Connetquot plays at Eastport/South Manor at 4:30 p.m., Locust Valley visits Port Washington, Baldwin is at Long Beach, Harborfields visits Walt Whitman and Massapequa hosts Carey at 4:45 p.m. and Jericho plays Floral Park in a 6:30 p.m. game at Robbins Lane Park in Syosset.
